Distiller can only convert Postscript files to PDF - that's it's purpose in

Acrobat (version 4 - the full version) has a new feature called WebCapture.
You can convert an HTML page to PDF by one of three (probably more) methods:

1. Open the File using the File>Open method - select HTML from the 'List of
File Types' list box
2. Drag a local/server based HTML file into the main Acrobat window from
3. Open an HTML via the Web Page Open button (and from the Tools Menu>Web
Capture submenu).

Another method, that can be used if you are behind a firewall/proxy server:

4. Use InterNet Explorer 4/5, open a web page, then select Print from the
File menu. Select the 'Print All Linked Items' checkbox, and then tell IE
to print to File (to a Postscript printer driver), then take the resultant
postscript files and drag them into Distiller. You can then open each PDF
file and use the Tools>Web Capture>View Web Links option to convert the HTML
tags(links) to Acrobat Hyperlinks. Or insert all of the PDF files into one
file and do it once (not once for each file you have).
